PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource covers all the outcomes for Grade 4 Science on Rocks, Minerals and Erosion in Nine detailed lesson plans. The activities and experiments are included in the resource with teaching suggestions and links to website and You Tube videos.

While there are references made to Saskatchewan in the unit, these can be used for any location in the world.

The following list is just a sample of the learning outcomes that are covered in this unit.

RM4.1: Investigate physical properties of rocks and minerals, including those found in the local environment
a. Pose questions about the properties of rocks and minerals
b. Document the locations of an the characteristics of rocks that exist in their local environment
c. Observe and record physical properties of rocks and minerals using appropriate terminology, such as colour, lustre, hardness, cleavage, transparency, and crystal structure
d. Use appropriate tools safely when making observations and collecting information on the physical properties of rocks and minerals
e. Demonstrate respect for all components of their environment when observing and collecting rocks and minerals
f. Demonstrate processes for testing the hardness of minerals, including reference to guides, such as Moh’s scale of hardness
g. Record observations of rocks and minerals using jot notes, labelled diagrams and charts
h. Compare the physical properties of rocks and minerals from the local environment with those of other geological areas
i. Develop a classification scheme to organize their understanding of rocks and minerals
j. Account for any variation between their classification schemes of rocks and minerals and those of their classmates, Elders, traditional knowledge keepers, geologists and other sources
k. Differentiate between rocks and minerals
l. Develop simple generalizations about the physical characteristics of rocks and minerals based on observation and research
